Is Advanced Micro Devices under- or over-valued?

Valuing Advanced Micro Devices stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Advanced Micro Devices's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Advanced Micro Devices's P/E ratio

Advanced Micro Devices's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 42x. In other words, Advanced Micro Devices shares trade at around 42x recent earnings.

That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Advanced Micro Devices's PEG ratio

Advanced Micro Devices's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 0.9019. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Advanced Micro Devices's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Advanced Micro Devices's EBITDA

Advanced Micro Devices's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $5.5 billion.

The EBITDA is a measure of a Advanced Micro Devices's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.

Advanced Micro Devices share dividends

We're not expecting Advanced Micro Devices to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Advanced Micro Devices's shares ever split?

Advanced Micro Devices's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 21 August 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Advanced Micro Devices shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Advanced Micro Devices shares which in turn could have impacted Advanced Micro Devices's share price.

Advanced Micro Devices share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Advanced Micro Devices's shares have ranged in value from as little as $54.57 up to $132.96. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMD.US volatility(beta: 1.98)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Advanced Micro Devices's is 1.9773. This would suggest that Advanced Micro Devices's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
